Shanty-Tok and the Growing Popularity of Sailing Music on Social Media
“There once was a ship that put to sea
And the name of that ship was the Billy o’ Tea
The winds blew hard, her bow dipped down
Blow, me bully boys, blow”
If you read these words in the melody of the newly popularized “Wellerman” sea shanty, then you are probably a part of the millions of other people who have come on board to sea shanty Tik Tok.
